Tigerpaw Adds D-Tools Integration


Business Management System Fitted with D-Tools Import Functionality

BELLEVUE, Neb., (September 3, 2008) – Tigerpaw Software, Inc., (www.tigerpawsoftware.com), a leading developer of business automation and service management software, announced today the addition of data import functionality with D-Tools System Integrator to its end-to-end business operations software solutions, Tigerpaw CRM+.

The integration with D-Tools expands the functionality of Tigerpaw’s Quote Import tool. The integration was designed to tie D-Tools functionality into Tigerpaw CRM+, creating a fully integrated process that eliminates the need for re-keying data. As a result, users are able to export customer data directly from Tigerpaw CRM+ to D-Tools to begin a proposal, eliminating the need to key in this information manually. Once the sale is made, users can then import the   D-Tools solution configuration data directly into Tigerpaw CRM+ to manage all their installation orders, service management, invoicing, purchasing, and accounting.

D-Tools data, including system configuration, peripheral products and service packages are imported directly into either new or existing Tigerpaw CRM+ quotes, simultaneously adding the data to Tigerpaw CRM+ installation orders and project management detail. Quotes are managed in Tigerpaw CRM+ through the installation, delivery and invoice processes.

“Import directly into a Tigerpaw CRM+ quote!” says Mike Cook, Sales Manager of Tigerpaw Software, Inc. “You can stop entering data manually, saving countless hours and manpower; click, click, click, and you’re done.”

“The integration of D-Tools System Integrator and Tigerpaw CRM+ offers integrators a powerful toolset for managing their client projects,” said Tim Bigoness, VP Sales & Marketing of D-Tools. “By combining D-Tools’ award-winning data-driven design and documentation capabilities with Tigerpaw’s inventory and service management functionality, the result is a powerful end-to-end solution for our joint customers.”
